Favreau Confirms “Chef” Casting With Vine

As Twitter is becoming too old hat and mainstream for film directors to drop scoops, some are turning to the blip video service Vine.

Today, Jon Favreau used the service to announce and confirm the casting of Dustin Hoffman and Bobby Cannavale in his new ensemble comedy “Chef”.

Favreau helms and stars as a chef who is sacked from a prestigious job and looks to re-energise his life and career by launching a food truck.

Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo and Robert Downey Jr. also star and the project is currently shooting in Los Angeles.
